From the shores of the Great Lakes to the mountains of the Upper Peninsula, Michigan (MI) hiking offers something for every kind of hiker.
Hikers can find trails all over the Lower Peninsula in Michigan's many parks and forests. Huron-Manistee National Forest offers hikers a chance to explore trails that lead to spring-fed lakes and sand dunes up to 140 ft high. Hike along the shores of Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, and Lake Erie, and enjoy the stunning views these bodies of water have to offer.
Upper Peninsula hiking has plenty to boast about as well with shores along Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, and Lake Huron. Enjoy paths that wind along sandy beaches or lead through deep forests near these lakes. Check out Hiawatha National Forest and Ottawa National Forest and explore trails that will lead you to deep forested wilderness areas with secluded lakes and streams. The Upper Peninsula also offers scenic mountain ranges with trails leading through areas like the Porcupine Mountains, where steep hikes lead to stunning views.
